BobGood day, and welcome to the Hoser. I'm Bob McKenzie and this is my brother Doug.
DougHow's it goin', eh?
BobOkay, so like our movie Strange Brew came out on DVD last month so like my hosehead brother here is going to tell you all about it, eh!
DougYeah. So like we went out and bought the DVD, right? But like it looks like a CD but won't play in our CD player.
BobCause our CD player doesn't hook up to the TV.
DougWell, it didn't. We "modified" it a bit.
BobI don't think tearing apart a pair of headphones and attaching them to both the CD player headphone jack and the power supply of the TV was a good idea, eh!
BobAll you readers out there who want to try this, our lawyers told us to tell you not to do it, eh! Cause like the CD player explodes!
DougAnd especially don't wear the headphones while you're testing it, cause like it hurts your ears or something.
BobWha? Somebody answer that phone, eh!
DougMy point exactly, eh!
BobHoser. Anyway, then we decided that probably the disc should go in our VCR, cause like it's a Digital Video Disc, and the VCR is a Video Cassette Recorder, eh!
DougMy brother Bob, the expert on three letter abbreviations.
BobSo like yeah. Don't put a DVD into a VCR.
DougCause it'll blow up!
BobWha? No... take off.
DougOkay, so it didn't blow up. It didn't do anything, which was disappointing after seeing the CD player explode.
DougSo we finally went out and bought a DVD player, right? But like they're expensive and we didn't have any money so like we just took back all our empties and then had enough to buy a player, eh?
BobRight. So anyway, we watched Strange Brew on DVD. It was a beauty, I think I'll watch it again.
DougThat's your review?
BobYeah. So that's The Hoser for this month, good day.
DougGood day, eh!
BobGreat issue, eh? (starts packing up beer cases)
Doug(turning off Coleman stove) Yeah. So after we watch Strange Brew again, then what are we gonna watch?
BobUh... Star Trek?
DougThere's Star Trek on DVD?
BobYeah, there's all those old TV shows on DVD.
DougBeauty! Wait... how much is this gonna cost us?
BobA few hundred dollars.
DougGEEZ! How are we gonna afford it?
BobWe could take back dad's empties and keep the money.
DougTake off. Last time we did that he booted us out of the house until we bought him more beer, remember?
BobOkay. I guess we could cut back on beer, eh?
DougNo way, eh!
BobOkay, hows about we buy that cheap backbacon. You know, the stuff that made us puke?
DougUm. So we'll get sick and have to stay home from work?
DougAnd watch Star Trek all day on our DVD player?
DougBeauty, let's go!
BobOkay, eh! (they leave)
